Armored Assault Badge by EWE BROKEN PIN - WWII German
Armored assault badge by EWE. This is a very scarce and unknown maker who seemed to be working out of Austria. Unfortunately the pin and the hook are missing while the pin hinge remains in place. I almost suspect that the GI souvenir hunter ripped it right off of some poor guys uniform without spending the time to unhook it. The front shows a white mark strangely located right on the eagle's crotch. That could probably be cleaned up easily but repairing the pin would need the help of someone who knows what they are doing. A very scarce maker marked panzer assault badge.
